to call and say congratulations to the entire mars science laboratory team and really all of jpl on last monday's incredible success. >> the president joked about the team member who gained a lot of attention for his funky mohawk. >> i have thought about getting a mohawk myself. my team keeps discouraging me. it sounds like nasa has come a long way since the white shirt and dark rimmed glasses. >> president added he has been asked about martians and urging nasa to let him know if they see anything extra terrestrial. >>> i could grow the reverse mohawk, but that wouldn't be as good. >>> get this, nobody has won the top prize since june 23, which means the wednesday drawings is worth $305 million. your chance of winning hasn't changed. it's still 1 in 175 million. >>> climbing mt. hood is impressive, but what about doing it when you are 104? >> that makes you a rock star. >> we'll tell you the dos and don'ts when it comes to buying travel insurance. dave. >> and we are live out here at redskins park. coming up on the end of training camp, and rg3 is going to speak to us coming up righ
and then take $5 billion away from jpl? those who created curiosity and made it happen. taking $5 billion away over the next five years. how much commitment is that the future. that is what i am arguing against. you know, we could give billions of dollars away to rescue a car company. and we will probably never get half of it back. but we can't find a little money here and there to re-create the technology it needs to challenge the future. neil: all right, so i don't want to leave you in a sticky position, but i want to leave you where you have seen every president -- i think since kennedy, right? you had a chance to meet with barack obama. if he were to come here, what would you tell him? >> if you gave me the time, sit down and talk like you and i are talking, i will tell him what i believe and why we do. do i think i could change his mind or agenda? probably not. i don't think he fully understands what traditional america is all about. because he didn't grow up here. i don't know that i can convince him why this is important. i don't know that he wants america to be first. i don't know that
and also just the human perspective. how many people worked on this to make this happen? >> jpl alone, we had about 3,500 people. >> amazing.
this happen? >> jpl alone, we had about 3,500 people. >> amazing. >> that doesn't include all the other centers and contractors and everything else. i believe i heard a number 7,000 people worked on this project. >> thanks so much. be sure to watch the very last word on the website. you can follow me on twitter at chrislhayes. "ed show" is up next. that everybody is talking about has mitt romney whining. republicans are on defense and ann coulter is calling for the head of romney's spokesperson? gosh, it's getting interesting. all that and harry reid is starting to reveal more information about his source. i'm loving it. hope you are too. this is "the ed show," let's get to work. >>> the past when people pointed out that something was inaccurate, why campaigns pulled the ad, they were embarrassed. >> the debate over the joe soptic ad hits fever pitch. mitt romney is crying foul in a stunning display of hypocrisy. >> they just blast ahead. journalist michael kinsley says the ad is fair game and he joins us tonight. >>> newt gingrich admits romney's welfare commercial is full of holes. >>
, there is a bit of a peanut tradition. please explain. >> well, at jpl, you know, with a nearly 50-year record of unbelievable planetary exploration, about 40 years ago the tradition began of opening peanuts when a keen event in planetary exploration began. we passed the peanuts around for good luck right before opportunity landed. and of course some of the pebbles under the rover deck remind us of those peanuts so it's all a good thing. >> and also, mohawk guy. cnn talked to him just yesterday. let's roll the sound. >> the thought that in some way of kids and other people that are motivated to come work here because they see me and they say, that guy can put stuff on mars, maybe i can too, i would like to say it takes all types to make these missions work. >> have you been just overwhelmed by the excitement? and i'm not just talking about his mohawk, but the whole deep space exploration, really just this outpouring in the last couple of days i'm sure globally. what does that mean for you and nasa? >> well, it means so much for all of us, because this is an 11-year journey. the engineers at jp
by laboratory -- i'm sorry. the jpl research scientist working with nasa, dr. luther beagle this morning. good to you have with us. >> good to be here. >> bill: curiosity as now we understand, on its way moving ever so slowly toward this mountainside is it or so of 400 meters away? >> yeah. we're moving to a place called triple plain. it's got a name -- i'm going to pronounce it wrong. but it is called galag. we've called it that because we have a naming convention. we've named this pretty interesting. we'll explore and see what's there. >> bill: how long will it take you to get there? 400 meeters is not a long distance. >> it is about a quarter of a mile. we're driving right now around 30 to 40 meters per day. it will take about ten days to get there if we go in a straight line. if we see something interesting along the way we'll stop and check it out. >> bill: what have we learned so far from curiosity? >> well, we've just come out of the checkout phase. we use the first two and a half, three weeks to make sure
to be there sunday night at jpl lab, in the control room. >> no way. >> watching the thing. it's really cool, you know whatever the satellite or whatever it is that's taking it up there, near mars and there is a parachute. >> a rocketship. >> okay. the parachute opens and the rover comes down and then there is a crane actually that will lower it and put it right on the surface. >> they are doing this from however far mars is away from here? millions of miles? >> unbelievable. >> will we be able to watch any of that, i wonder. >> we have the olympics. we can at least have this. >> this might be the only thing that could pull me away from the olympics. i might actually watch this. >> they are going to tape delay it if it's on nbc. >> that's true. >> why don't you find out and let us know before the end of the program. i think it's very exciting. again, citizens united. health care here at the top of the hour and jobs in the next hour. but first: >> this is the full"the full court press". >> other headlines making news two major gold medal wins for the u.s. in lonton
laboratory or jpl. you are steely-eyed missile men and you deserve every missed high five of your celebration. i got to say, it was nice to see that nasa saved money by hiring staff from the local best buy. but, folks -- it's a penny pincher, a penny pincher. and, folks, just cry to conceive of what was achieved this morning. we gently landed a one ton, six-wheel suv 154 million miles from earth. i mean, that onstar lady is getting good. we now have two rovers on the surface of mars and three satellites orbiting it. basically if the planets are a tray of donuts, we have now licked mars. it's ours. we already had the moon, we just need venus for the monopoly and we can start building hotels on them. >> welcome back to "morning joe." sam stein and katty kay are still with us, along with john meacham in new york. joining us here in washington, the host of "hardball" chris matthews. and author of "jack kennedy." >> chris, you came on set and said you like what harry reid did. >> how could you like that? >> i liked it because i think obama has needed confederates in the field for most of his life
jpl employees on staff. host: kelly from massachusetts on our independent line. caller: you said you are giving companies $1.1 billion. why are we giving them money to reinvent the wheel? we already have the technology to get into space. why aren't we sharing the technology? guest: the companies are using nasa's technology to get into space. the space shuttle was an incredibly capable vehicle, but was not a cheap vehicle. it had a lot capabilities that we did not need. it was a vehicle that was good for lower earth orbits. they build two capabilities to replace it. the other is to go beyond lower earth orbit, but we did do with the apollo program. the space shuttle was a very high-tech vehicle but it wasn't the right vehicle for where we're going now. host: here are some numbers from 2011, looking at contract awards that were given how. host: these funds were given to companies. a question from monty on twitter . guest: the commercial applications can seem far- fetched. if you can find water, water can be turned into fuel that you can use to power a rocket. it can be useful for explo
the olympics. it sounded like last night at the jpl, at the jet prop pulse lab who are the ones responsible for the mars rover working for nasa. their laboratory in pasadena california. here was the big word. >> wooo! wooo >> they are wound pretty tight. >> they have been working. imagine how many years they have been working on this thing. >> sure, yeah. >> how much money they spent. originally, they put one.$6,000,000,000 toward this project and it ended up costing two and a half billion dollars. >> my tax dollars well spent. >> uh-huh. >> just amazing. what was it? like 14 minutes or so because there wasn't any direct line with earth at the time that it landed. so it took 14 minutes for it to kind of turn the corner and make that what? 154 million miles. so it took that long. there was a period where they thought it was down but they didn't know for like 14 minutes, i guess. they had to wait and wait and wait and wait and then boom. >> that's when that news came. very exciting. >> it's awesome. i love -- i love the space program stuff. >> yeah. >> and the
us do it to request this wee. >> hubert humphrey. on c-span3. >> now nasa engineers at the jpl in california give an update on the mars rover curiosity mission. they talk about the space craft landing on mars earlier this week and show pictures. this is about an hour and 10 minutes. >> welcome to the jp el. we are holding our finalists conference for the week. -- our final conference this we. >> this week, we have had a tremendous success in landing on mars and the beginning of the exploration of a new world. we're going to hear from a senior software engineer who will give us a preview of what's coming up in the next few days for the rover. first, we're going to hear from the descent and landing team. they have been poring over the data and have some new details for us. first, i want to introduce the lead, adam, and his deputy, miguel san martin. >> thank you, veronica. we have a talented panel here for you today. miguel and i wanted to be the ones to introduce them to you. leading off the rotation, the operations lead for descent and landing. from the johnson space flight cen
